    Hello,

    My name is Mike, and I am the content lead over here at Solairs Labs, Montreal.  We have been a Microsoft partner for a couple years now, developing WPF multimedia content for large format interactive gesture screens.  We are about to dive into some serious 3D implementation (High res 3D scans of artifacts for some national Canadian museums), and I was wondering if there was someone there on the Blend development team who I can bounce some questions off of.  Please contact me at mike@solarislabstech.com if you think you would be the person to talk to (ideally involved in Blend’s more advanced 3D features).  Thanks!

    Awesome, thanks a ton!  I think this is going to make showing the grandparents the metric ton of kids photos real slick!!

  16. I’m wondering if DeepZoom would be something that would work well for a photo gallery?  I have over 20 gigs of 10 megapixel family photos and I upload new ones every month or so.  Could you programmatically create DeepZoom images and then have my family (some of which are on 28k modems) view optimized smaller versions of the images and then zoom in if they wanted to see a more detailed version?

    When the RTM of Deep Zoom Composer will re released?

  32. Kirupa (MS) says:

    Sometime in the near future. In case you are interested, we just released another update to Deep Zoom Composer yesterday 🙂

  33. trevor says:

    are you guys planning on updating the guide, seeing as you have updated deep zoom composer quite a bit?

    the output section provides very little info, and noe of the options that are now part of DZC.

    documentation sorta helps, don’t you think – or is this tool simply meant for those internal people already in the know?

    pu-leaze!  give us some doc’s here already

  34. Kirupa (MS) says:

    trevor – yes, the guide will be updated for our final release. We plan on actually providing more formal documentation both inside the application and online.

    Cheers!

    Kirupa

  35. George Elam says:

    you said we would have documentation with final release. When do you plan to do that?

    thanks,

  36. Kirupa (MS) says:

    George – you have documentation right now in the latest version of DZC. You can also browse the same documentation online here: http://expression.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc295790.aspx

    If there is something that isn’t adequately being covered by our documentation, feel free to let us know by responding.

    Cheers!

    also, you'll see below that many other posts on the web point to here for the user guide, so why not add a URL here to take one to the user guide online? (without having to download the s/w first to see what it's about)

    YOU ALSO REACH THIS POST VIA http://www.microsoft.com/…/details.aspx if you click the "DeepZoom Composer" link in the description. So where is the online user guide or a download file for it?
